I was at a swim meet. A FREAKIN' SWIM MEET. I had one more race for the day. I went to the bathroom before heading up to the swim deck only to find a surprise at the bottom of my one-piece. I panicked and just hid in the stall. Finally, my mom came bursting into the locker room looking for me when my race was about to start. I laugh now because I remember her face said, “OMFG why now?” She told me that everything's cool and made me race anyways. I stood on the block, hoping that blood wasn’t running down my legs. Not to mention that I was doing breaststroke, the only stroke where you spread your legs LOL. Spoiler, I survived but still triggered to this day.

I was 13 years old, awkward, innocent, and changing in the middle school locker rooms for P.E. class. All of a sudden I realize that something doesn’t quite seem right. Being 13, dramatic, and in full panic mode, I called my mom telling her she NEEDED to come get me. Because I was dying. I told her I needed to be driven to the hospital immediately for tests to see what could possibly be wrong with me. Instead, she drives straight home. I remember my mom gave me the American Girl “Body Book” and it made me feel way more normal about all these changes. All of a sudden it was cool that I got it first, and when my friends caught up I became their go-to girl.

It was the summer right after 6th grade and I was on vacation with my family in France. One day while sitting at a restaurant I started feeling horrible stomach pains, so bad I thought my appendix was going to burst. I didn’t want to ruin our vacation so I didn’t tell anyone. The next day I noticed blood when I went to the bathroom. My older sister had already gotten her period so I knew exactly what it was. I just stuffed a bunch of toilet paper in my underwear and it passed after about another day. I didn’t tell my mom until later when we were back home in America.

I’d just gotten back from basketball practice and hopped in the bathroom for a shower. Halfway through washing my hair, I looked down and saw some blood running down my leg. I thought to myself, “shoot, I must’ve cut myself somewhere.” My 12-year old mind immediately imagined another player scratching me or running into something—because that happens all the time on your inner thigh right?. Well, fifteen minutes later, having not found a cut or any source of blood at all, I concluded that I’d just seen red (again, clueless 12-year-old mind at work). Later that evening my mom came to my room and asked, “Is there anything you want to tell me?”. I said “Oh no, I just cut my leg somewhere”. My mom, seeing right through my 12-year-old ignorance, didn’t take this explanation.

I was 12 years old and I was at an all-day soccer camp in the hot heat of summer. It was during sprints that I noticed DAMN, I am sweating A LOT. A lot more than normal. It was in that hot porta potty stall where I noticed my underwear was covered in blood. Little 12 year-old me thought I was allergic to exercise or really outdid myself in sprints that day. When I got home I made my mom check my underwear. She goes, “Yup honey, that is your period. Welcome to the club”. I had plans later that day to go swimming so this meant only one thing: tampon crash course. After I got the tampon in, I called my friends and bragged about this whole tampon experience. And how my mom said I am a woman now.

I was 13 years old and I was on my way to Sandusky Ohio for a family vacation, once we settle in our hotel I started feeling really bad stomach pain I thought it was gas so I really didn’t think that it was period cramps, so later on that day I started spotting so I just put toilet paper in my underwear, a few days later I was at my aunts house and I went to the bathroom and I was bleeding 😩 so I called my mom and told her I started my period. She was so excited she even told the cashier I started my period 🤦🏾‍♀️😂.
